ChrisTMas Gift

I saw this scrumptious fabric & decided to make an apron as a Christmas gift with it.
I trimmed it with ReD and added a cute "BuTTon" on the pocket.
Yes... I'm very HaPPy with it... so into the box it goes!

I am linking up with Anthea over HERE for 
Christmas Thru The Year.

BooK It as a PIF

Covering two birds with the one post here... perhaps not quite the correct quote but you get the idea... but I have had a pattern by Hatched & Patched called Friendship Bag for years.
I decided to make it & add it as part of my PIF gift to Kim from HERE.
It's a cute little bag to hold a project ( 7.1/2in x 10in) with an outside sissor keeper pocket.
Kim let me know it arrived safely... & she liked it.

My THANKS must go to Sharon from HERE for encouraging us to dust off & use "old" books & patterns each month. I love this little cutie & will be making more of them in the future.
I'll link this post to "Lets Book It" at the end of the month.

HoHoHo... another FiNisH

Yes this quilt is FiNaLLy finished... insert BIG sigh of relief here... 

I think this "Santa's North Pole Village" small quilt is so QuiRKy & FuN.
I thought I was so clever finding in my stash the snowy background & after measuring it, thought I was in great shape... if I was careful... to use it ALL up. Well I didn't account for another block at the top showing Santa & his sleigh flying in the night sky did I... ooppss not enough left over for that. After MonTHs of trying to find suitable fabric to finish it...with NO luck finding any fabric that I was HaPPy with... I just decided to leave THAT block off the top.
I then went in search for the perfect border fabric & LuCKiLy I found it.
So after a few sleepless nights, more than a few worried moments & many miles driving around this city... it's all completed now & ready for use in December...
My fav block is the centre one above... & the last pic shows the backing I used.

The pattern is from the book Welcome to the North Pole by Piece of Cake Designs... called Santa's Village in Applique. My version of the quilt measures 46 inch x 52 inch.
My THanKs must go to VAL for starting the "North Pole QAL" many months ago.

Another now a FO... yippee...
